<html><img src="startheader.jpg" /></html>\nEarlier me and St. John had desecrated a grave, and robbed it of an ancient jade amulet symbolizing some sort of winged hound. At first we thought nothing of it except for the amusement it caused us to joke about its satanic abilities, yet as time progressed we came to realize the amulet held an ancient curse revolving around the figurine of the winged hound. We were haunted by this beast of the night, only through sounds, eerie shadows and silhouettes... up until now. \n\nA little while ago I heard St. John’s scream from the forests, I rushed to check on him only to find his mangled corpse lying on the side of the road with the only signs of his killer being large paw prints in the dirt. Now the beast is coming for me, and I fear it may be at its most vile and furious when the clock strikes midnight. \n\nMy only chance now is to find a way to fight the monster, but I must use the magic which was used to summon it, lest I wish to be devoured in a futile attempt to kill it. \n\n* [[Outside|outside]]\n<<if $time gt 180>>\n<<else>>\n <<set $time = 180>>\n <<set $raven = 1>>\n <<set $damnraven = 1>>\n <<set $amulet = 0>>\n //You have 3-hours left//\n<<endif>>
